might be pregnant? help ?

Okay so i have started birth control barely & its called Loestrin 24. i am on the first out of 4 last iron pills & after im done with all of them it will be a month of me being on birth control. I know the side affects are bleeding once & a while cause i had it the first two weeks but the other day i had bled for two days like it felt like i was on my period. So i thought to myself it was weird because i thought i was suppose to get my period when i was on the sugar pills? after i was done from those 2 days maybe 3 or 4 days passed and So monday i had been with my boyfriend and i was on the active pill still and we had sex with a condom but it had ripped & i think he had ejaculated. i want to know if i can get pregnant even though i have been taking my pill regularly everyday the way its suppose to be taken. please give me honest good answers i am super nervous and yesterday which was tuesday i took an active pill and now im on the sugar pill but i dont know . i doubt im pregnant but im still nervous?? Sad

Welcome to ehealthforum.
Having unprotected intercourse is usually advised after you complete one pack completely and get your ‘periods’. Since the condom broke and you have still not had your bleeding, consider taking emergency contraception if 72 hours is not yet over after the intercourse. It will help in preventing pregnancy. If 72 hours are over, wait for your periods, if you do not get them within next 3-4 days, then report back to your gynecologist and discuss about the incident. Stop taking the pills until you get your periods. Start with next pack after you get your periods.
Take care.
